Hot or Not? Lavabo by Cappellini

With its majestic "wings," this washbasin is a stunner. Sure, it's entirely impractical for resting your toothbrush, but, if the price were right, would you give the Lavabo a try in your bathroom?

Designed by Cappellini for the SAIE fair in Bologna, the basin was created with the help of 3-D software technology.

Said Giacomo Cappellini, "The shaping of surfaces in a three-dimensional space has been achieved thanks to the performance of CNC machines. This opens new prospects for the use of stone, marble and granite in fields where more ductile materials do still dominate incontestably."

From what we can tell, the Lavabo isn't in production yet, but we imagine there's plenty of high-end homes that will clamor for this ethereal addition.
